A couple arrangements of tunes I love.
A few transcriptions of incredible recordings I love.
Pieces that have room for lots of improvisation!
Various pieces, including some of the first notes I ever wrote, for solo piano. I found home in this instrument for many years, and this music speaks to that.
Dedicated to Simone Dinnerstein, in memory of Ralph Elsaesser.
The whole piece takes a little over an hour to perform without repeats. It follows the same structure of the Goldberg Variations, that is, an aria opens, and following that are 30 variations on the bass-line of the aria. The whole piece is 87 pages, and in the preview is the cover, the performance notes, the aria, and first page of each variation.
These were commissioned by Deborah Wills, a bright light in the world. They are 7 minutes or so in length, and there are 5 movements to it. The first is a energetic and pointed prelude, the second a quick invention with lots of hand crossing, the third a jagged intermezzo, the fourth a funny waltz, and the fifth a sentimental postlude.
A collection of "Portraits", for various solo instruments.
Music to play with others, or in a room.
